Formed in 1986 in Tuam, County Galway, The Saw Doctors have achieved nineteen top-thirty singles in Ireland, including three number ones. Their first number one, "I Useta Lover," topped the Irish charts for nine consecutive weeks in 1990 and held the record for the country's all-time biggest-selling single.
Renowned for their barnstorming live performances, the band has a loyal following, especially in Ireland, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
In 2008, the bands received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Meteor Ireland Music Awards.
After a 17 year breaks between No. 1 albums, the band returned to the top of the Charts in October 2008 with a cover of the Sugababes "About You Now" proving that after more than 20 years they are still one of Ireland's most popular rock acts.
